Authors: Barabasz-Gembczyk A, Kucia K Abstract Ayahuasca, also known as "the liana of the soul" and "the vine of the soul" is a ritual psychedelic traditionally administered in the form of plant decoction, used by the indigenous people of South America for centuries, and in the last 25 years also in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, Canada, and the United States.

When cocaine was discovered to be a topical anesthetic for the eye, physicians learned that this local anesthetic “got the red out” by vasoconstricting inflamed vessels in bloodshot eyes. Ironically, clinicians today recognize cocaine addicts by the latter’s reddened eyes, which suffer from not only “rebound redness” but also hyperdynamic cardiovascular states. The 4 fluid ounce bottle of coca extract (above) was labeled with red ink by Parke, Davis&Company. Unfortunately, reds as a color rank lowest in visible light energy. So, for us to see the red letters, they must absorb more energeti...

This article idea was suggested by a Conscious Growth Club member. After a little reflection, I thought, why not? I’ve seen every episode of every non-animated Star Trek series, including the original 1960s classic, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, Enterprise, Discovery, and the new Picard series. I’ve seen many episodes multiple times. I’ve seen all of the movies. I’ve been to a Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas. So I’m pretty well versed in Star Trek lore.

Authors: Aydin C, Frohmader K, Emery M, Blandino P, Akil H Abstract Stress during adolescence has profound effects on the onset and severity of substance use later in life. However, not everyone with adverse experiences during this period will go on to develop a substance use disorder in adulthood, and the factors that alter susceptibility to substance use remain unknown. Here, we investigated individual differences in response to stress and drugs of abuse using our selectively bred high-responder (bHR) and low-responder (bLR) rats. These animals model extremes of temperamental tendencies and differ dramatically in...
